the question? >> cenk: michael shure talked to brian ross about that story. really interesting. don't miss that. and then later in the program it turns out huge parts of the osama bin laden raid were made up. >> they walked by and said, are you guys ready? can you pull this off? i'm pretty sure they said, yes absolutely. >> cenk: right before the show people came up and said, are you all ready. we shook hands and said yes. you know why? because it's go time. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> cenk: so last night everybody of course thought mitt romney's speech was going to be the big moment at the end of the republican national convention. it turns out we were wrong. the big moment was president obama. invisible obama's. so let's break down the convention for you. first clint eastwood came out. this is what we were referencing. he gave a rambling unfortunate speech where he was talking to an inadvisable obama. let's watch a little piece of it. >> all of these promises, and then i wondered about you know, when the--what? what do you want me to tell romney? i can't tell him that. i he can't do

go come on. this is now being called pole trutherism. and i love what our own michael shure started. he started a hashtag called dick morris predictions. no one will even notice that the nfl is even using replacement reps. he is already catching on fire. i love it. another way that they go here with the counterattacks is mitt romney doing an on-air ad. when you see the actual candidate in the ad, you know he is in a little bit of trouble. why? because they don't normally go in that direction. he is trying to do a personal appeal. here is mitt romney trying. >> romney: president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families, the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off of welfare and get a better job. >> cenk: problem number 2 if you have to start your ad by talking about how great your opponent is, you are in trouble. >> i'm not a witch. i'm nothing you have heard. i'm you. i'll go to washington, and do what you would

[ laughter ] >> cenk: any ways, when we come back, we have a very serious story, unfortunately. fox news wound up showing basically a suicide on the air. how in the world did they screw this up? >> if it were up to me we would stay with this. but nothing is up to me. you wait until the end of this thing and thaw -- get off. get off. >> cenk: and later roseanne barr joins us. >> i'm using it as a stepping tone. >> cenk: oh, really. ♪ like you. >>now that's politically direct. fruit just got cooler. fruit on one side, cool on the other. new ice breakers duo. a fruity, cool way to break the ice. ttv ♪ s trick, which is follow car chases. they got a little carried away with it today. let me show you a snipit of two of the cases. >> we have not one, but two car chases. >> thank you megan. there was a little bit of weirdness while you were watching the commercial break. we now have a live picture. look at this ding

and having michael shure of "the young turks" and david shuster on the floor. it was solid coverage. we did four hours of live coverage every night. all of you know this because you were watching current without fail and it was really, really a great experience to be sitting there with, you know, a real political insiders. what i like about what current is doing is their line-up is comedians with joy and stephanie. journalists like bill press and cenk. just powerhouse selects of elected -- intellects of elected officials. having eliot spitzer and jennifer granholm on the same panel. it was humbling. i'm relieved to be back here in l.a. recovering from the bliss of the convention. did you guys enjoy the democratic convention? >> i loved it. i thought it was good. the first thing i noticed the first night when they showed the crowd, you immediately noticed a difference from the rnc crowd. >> john: yeah. >> volumewise, too. >> it was like going from a bowl of milk to someone spilled pepper. >> john: we'll have our first disagreement. there were black folks and brown folks at the g.o.p.

that michael shure is going to have more on this. security is exceptionally tight in the arena and it has been that way for the last 45 minutes. so at least if you're trying to read the tea leaves and you want to read the tea leaves further there was a romney supporter somehow got a credential and was identified by the secret service and taken out of the convention. they're being particularly tight trying to make sure that things run smoothly from a security vantage point. it seems like that report could be credible but i don't know if this person from the dnc is hearing it from george stephanopoulos or other sources but there is the buzz here that president obama will be here either on stage or at least in a v.i.p. box to watch president clinton. >> cenk: all right, thank you david. we appreciate it. as shayna mentioned christina is now on the stage. let's see who she has to say. >> some tough questions i have tackled big issues on life tv. one thing i have never done until now was get involved in politics. but this year is very different! if 2008 was an important election nothing co

, guys? >> i just found out that michael shure is a fan of the foo fighter. >> not a crazy fan. >> you're a fan. >> i'm a fan. they were good. >> we got a little more information about president obama's speech tonight. the democrats at the obama campaign point out if you want to condense bill clinton's speech to the issue of needing more time, that time is something they want people to take away watching t.v. that president obama has so many challenges, he needs more time. one thing they want to get without with the speech tonight one of the things they think they can do to change the economy is provide detail. we may get some pretty specific policy details, policy proposals tonight, such as on the housing crisis what he would do as far as further stimulus. again, they are thinking about the idea that providing these details and at least americans might reward president obama for providing more details than mitt romney. >> he's going to emphasize that this is a job that's sort of halfway done. he never promised it was going to take a short period of time. he needs to continue this. it's n
